For the latest episode in Alexander Wang’s series of "Confessional" videos, the designer introduces us to two fresh faces who modelled in his spring summer ’12 show.
Lara Mullen was scouted in a Northampton pub weeks before the show, never having modelled in as much as a student fashion event before flying to New York for a casting with Wang.
‘Four weeks ago I was just at work, looking after screaming kids, and now I’m here,’ she says. ‘I don’t think I can call myself a model—I’ve not modelled anything yet! Today is the first day.’
‘You act like you’re that person. Whatever that designer, whatever he wanted to see, you personify it. I’m kind of like the canvas, really.’
The video provides a sweet window into the world of two very excited young women making their runway debuts. Take a look, and wish them well...
